On Saturday, June 24th a famous local run called "Altstadtlauf" took place in the historic center of Herrenberg, Germany. For the first time a team from FEINMETALL participated in uniform shirts. Overall 108 teams started at this 100 Kilometer relay. Many spectators cheered for the runners at very hot temperatures in the middle of the historic town.
"The run was really great, the whole atmosphere within the spectators as well as within our team was fabulous. Everybody has fought and given his best. The acclamations of the visitors have motivated and encouraged us. In advance we had defined an order for the relay, and this was really a good fit", so the initiator of the FEINMETALL running team.
"I am proud of our team and appreciate having such initiatives here that go beyond work", said the CEO Wolfgang Bürkle. "It is very important for me to support the team spirit in our company."
The idea to start with a FEINMETALL running team already came up much earlier, because FEINMETALL already sponsored the participation of employees at the Berlin marathon. Two employees started with this initiative and initiated a small running group. Since beginning of the year this group regularly meets for training.
Finally the FEINMETALL team made it on the 67. place out of 108 participating teams. "The feedback of all colleagues was very positive, we are all very satisfied with the result and with the team spirit, and all in all it was a great fun", said one of the runners. A participation for next time is already planned.
